"There has been a certain level of frustration. We're doing all we can to build this team and to excite the fans again about life at RFK. And we're having trouble getting the simplest things done. We keep getting foot-dragging....It does weight us down as we try to move forward. And we keep getting silly roadblocks that stop us. So we're moving the team to Las Vegas." (Stan Kasten, via Washington Post, 7/21/2006)
On the eve of RFK's grand reopening, Lerner group announces plans to move the Nationals to Las Vegas next season.
Blah. Why do we get the feeling that we will never ever ever ever see the end of this tiresome MLB vs. the District routine? It's gonna be a long haul to 2008. There's no chance that the new stadium opens on time, by the way.
